Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has expressed hope that the Iraqi crisis would be solved peacefully. "Iraq would abide by UN Security Council resolution 1441 and would not give any chance for war to break out," Mubarak was quoted as saying Wednesday by al-Ahram daily.
"This could be done through Baghdad's full cooperation with UN inspectors," he said, warning against grave consequences in case ofwar on Iraq.
"The Iraqi leader should realize that the stance of Arab nations regarding a peaceful settlement is based on the international legitimacy and Iraq's compliance with international resolutions," the Egyptian president noted. (Albawaba.com)
